    To quickly make CVW Windows client look pretty:
    1.Install the latest JRE from Sun (mine is jre1.5.0_06) and copy it to the CVW client /jre subfolder instead of the old one. This will improve the look of buttons ans scrollers.
    2.Cut Windows XP standard icons from \system32\shell32.dll, resize them to 28x28 gifs, preferably make the default background transparent (I used Gimp for Windows option of selecting by color and then deleting selection), save them under the names corresponding to what is in CVW client /images subfolder and replace the original icons. The default icon set has a lot of icons that can be logically assign to the main menu functions.
    That's all. Enjoy a modern look of the CVW treasures!
